    The otters of Farthing Wood are leaving their depleted pond to hunt on land The foxes especially take objection to this not wanting to share, they force the otters awaywhile forces unbeknownst to them, decide the fate of the entire wood Luke Bookseller, HammersmithAn absolute classic from my childhood I grew up on both the books and the TV show, eagerly collecting each tale to add to my shelf Rereading this book was both an absolute joy and a heartbreaking eye opener, as a child you love the stories and the characters of each animal As an adult this is a heartbreaking tale of human destruction and greed without regard for the sanctity of the goodness of nature Wayne Manager, HammersmithFurther reading The Animals of Farthing Wood by Colin Dann ISBN 9781405281805

    Like all prequels, this does not match up perfectly with established facts and events, despite its best efforts to do so The story is very bleak and pretty pointless The otters cure for the sickness makes sense for them, but I ve never been able to see any good reason why it should work on other animals.

    Pointless and mostly boring I wouldn t like how bleak it was if I cared about any of the characters, but I don t There s some wasted potential in the meeting and in Sleek Otter s journey through the story, both of which fail miserably Nervous Squirrel is incredibly annoying, and as for Sage Hedgehog well, the first Farthing Wood book felt very much like a mediocre copy of another man s genius, and here Dann is at it again with a mediocre copy of Fiver.

    This is a prequel to The Animals of Farthing Wood, so chronologically it comes first, even though it was the last book to be written It s a decent book, but I don t recommend starting the series here.That s partly because the author got a bit sophisticated over time, so it may feel odd to take a step backwards when you move on to the first written book in the series For instance, each character in that is simply named after their species, e.g Fox and Badger By contrast, the animals in this book have adjectives too, e.g Stout Fox and Lean Fox The animals never actually use those names to refer to each other, so the names are gradually introduced after a description There is an unfortunate typo on page 57 of this edition where the names get mixed up view spoiler Sleek Otter is referred to as Smooth Otter by mistake hide spoiler

    While the general tone of the Farthing Wood series is still present here gripping storyline and adventures had by the animal main characters there s something lacking in this prequel It s not just unfamiliarity with the new main characters, but that the otters come off as an unfeeling group worthy of little sympathy, throwing the book out as the reader questions who to support There is also a rather gruesome feel to the story While none of the subsequent novels gloss over the harsher realities of life in the wild as does the TV series, this one is particularly violent and I would not recommend for young readers It can easily be left out of a read of the series, giving off a feeling very much of an afterthought.
